The Creative Day Care centre acts as a hub for their members’ social activities, and enable mixing between all ages and abilities. Every day members engage in creative and receive any training that interests them, beyond daily social and creative activity. The centre runs a semi-formal programme where members can come-and-go between various projects through their day.
Sarah visited the centre and was involved in a Makaton session. Makaton is a language programme using signs and symbols to help people to communicate. It is designed to support spoken language and the signs and symbols are used with speech, in spoken word order. For those who experience the frustration of being unable to communicate meaningfully or effectively, Makaton really can help them.
While Sarah was at the centre she also found out about a fundraising project the members are taking part in. In celebration of Mother’s Day on 6th March, members of the centre are making lovely paper bouquets to order for £5 each to help raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Research and Scarborough DAG.
